Motorcycles & Scooters

Motorcycles and scooters are not only worth a lot, but also not easy to protect while being transported. Though, it turns out that everything depends on the way we do it and how much previous experience with transport we have. It is feasible to transport a motorbike or a moped without hussle, undoubtedly. The way you will secure it depends on the mean of transportation. Thanks to some valuable tricks you could prevent any damages, and dents that could happen when a scooter or motorbike is not properly cared for.

When you are transporting the motorcycle on a trailer you will need 4 strapping belts to strap it down. If you use a trailer which is designed for motorbikes or scooters, it already has been equipped with the rail that stabilises the motorbike. In this case you will need only 2 belts. It is crucial to use a closed hook at the ends of the belts, rather than an open one. The closed one will not open up by accident during the transport.

It is also worth checking the sharp edges or elements that may possibly tear up the belts and make it impossible to safely transport your motorcycle. It's also possible to transport a motorcycle in a van. The protection and equipment needed to keep the motorbike mounted safely in one place will not vary too much from other ways mentioned before. One thing to be considered is installing the side pads to protect the insides of the truck and other objects that may accompany the motorbike.

There are also platforms that hooked to a truck or van, can let you ship your motorcycle without occupying the whole space in the truck.

 

Remember to check with the shipping company if the equipment they provide will suffice to transport your motorbike. For instance, using a wooden stand for lifting your motorcycle and loading it in a truck could pose danger to people providing the service or pedestrians passing by, but could also cause substantial damage to your motorbike/motorcycle.
